Frequently asked questions
Battery failure is one of the leading causes of power outages. Preventive maintenance programs help maximize batteries’ useful life and reduce battery failures. Battery maintenance can increase UPS and DC power system performance and reliability. Battery maintenance is also required by battery vendors to maintain warranties.
For US and certain Canadian power utilities, battery maintenance is now mandatory by law and audits occur. If non-compliance is ascertained, hefty fees may be issued.
A thermal runaway is an incident that builds up slowly over time and results in an uncontrollable increase of temperature. Undetected thermal runaways can lead to costly damage to equipment and, in more severe case, fire or personal injury. Thermal runaway protection is therefore essential for your facility.
